Anti-Racism/Pro-Reconciling Justice Ministries Training

  • South Street Christian Church - Springfield (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

There are two different sessions available today.

One is our first-level course for both clergy and laity. Participants will learn to name and understand key terms/concepts related to racism; describe current and historic examples of institutional racism, white privilege, civil and human rights in the U.S.; explore and articulate biblical foundations for justice ministry; and engage in informed dialogue about current issues of racism. (If you’re new to ARPRJM, check out the Friday night introductory gathering.)

The other option is our next-level course which will focus more on community organizing towards racial justice. This session is also open to both clergy and laity, but participants must have attended a first-level session previously. Faith based community organizing is a call from the Spirit of God to join God’s work in confronting institutional sin, by demanding systemic, economic, and political change therefore creating a more just world and full liberation for the people and the community of God.  This training will give leaders common language, the beginning tools to do faith based community organizing, and develop a plan for action for any justice issue about which they are passionate. 

Both sessions satisfy the clergy continuing education requirement of such training every three years.

Pricing is the same no matter which session you choose:
Free for college students! 
$10 for laity and clergy not needing certification.
$50 for clergy needing certification.

All registrations include lunch and childcare if needed (must request upon registration). Scholarships available. Register online now. Mail in registration form.

Bridgeton Fund Grant application due date
Jan
31
9:00 AM09:00

Bridgeton Fund Grant application due date

The Bridgeton Christian Church Fund is an endowment created by the former Bridgeton Christian Church when it closed in 1995.

The purpose of the fund, as stipulated by the congregation, is three-fold:

  • To meet monetary shortfalls due to unexpected strife in a church;

  • To help a church underwrite “revitalization/renewal” of its congregation

  • To help meet property/structural damage caused by an act of God or other circumstances and not caused by neglect.

Guidelines stipulate that the Fund shall be used to meet a church’s temporary financial need, as long as the need was not created by “overextension of a budget or repetitive under-funding of a budget by the congregation”. Any Mid-America congregation may apply for a 2019 grant. The committee will review applications to determine whether they meet the fund’s requirements. The committee will meet in late February to determine whether the year-ending balance in the fund warrants grants without jeopardizing the growth of the fund as stipulated by the donors. Completed applications are due to the Southeast Gateway office by January 31, 2019.

Boundary Training

  • First Christian Church - Brookfield (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

We are created in and for relationships.  Life-enriching relationships, whether with intimate partners, family, friends, colleagues or parishioners, require healthy boundaries.  This workshop explores the meaning and practice of healthy boundaries in the context of ministry.  It will also identify the signs, dangers, and preventions of boundary violations, including those in today’s social media.  The workshop begins with an assumption that the complexity of relational dynamics in the congregation is one of its greatest possibilities and its greatest challenges for ministry.

Our instructor is Rev. Donna Rose-Heim. She is an ordained Disciple minister and has served both in congregations and on regional staffs. She has been an installed pastor and has served as a transitional interim in several settings. She now serves as a consultant, speaker, trainer and writer. She serves as lead instructor for the Mid-America Region in providing Boundary Training for clergy. She was trained by Dr. Marie Fortune and Dr. Aleese Moore-Orbih of the Faith Trust Institute. She is author of “Dream Walking”, which she published in 2007, and “Dream Walking for Kids” published in 2011. She has led numerous retreats about the spiritual life.

Clergy with active ministerial standing in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) must participate in such a boundary training session every three years. The $55 registration fee includes lunch and all distributed materials.

10th Annual Free Thanksgiving Dinner

The members of Affton Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) continue a community outreach project that began 10 years ago - to provide a free Thanksgiving dinner on Thanksgiving Day. The number of meals served has increased from 50 in 2008 to over 500 meals in 2017. The mission is to provide a meal and place for people who don’t want to be alone on Thanksgiving Day or are unable to afford a holiday meal for themselves or their families. ACC will also deliver meals in a limited area to homebound community members. Those interested in meal delivery or transportation to/from the church are asked to call ahead by November 20th (314.631.5777). Over 100 volunteers come together to make this special day happen, many of whom do not attend ACC. These are simply kind-hearted souls who want to “’pay it forward.” Some local area businesses also participate by donating goods and services that supplement the ACC outreach funds designated to support this important annual event.
